A 3-year-old girl shot in the head last weekend is showing signs of improvement, but is still in critical condition.

We're learning new information about what happened at the Citgo station shooting last Saturday. The family says little London's mom pulled in and didn't even get a chance to notice that two men were fighting before the bullets started coming their way. The third bullet, apparently, is the one that went through their windshield and hit London in the head. 

"The bullet is actually still in her brain," says Patrice Kelly, London's grandma. "It cannot be removed at this point because it is too deep and it is actually dangerous for it to be removed at this point."

London's grandma and aunt say despite that, she's talking and playing.

"She's a really outgoing little girl, she was her own person," said Racqel Devaulet, her aunt. "To see her down a bit, it hurts. But I just want to be grateful because she is doing so well."

"She's doing great; she's doing better than what is expected," Kelly said.

The vibrant child is staying strong with her mommy by her side.

"I was just in disbelief, like to this day I still feel like I'm dreaming," said Devaulet. "I am not going to say that fighting or any confrontation is (good). I would prefer you fight before pulling out a gun and you shoot somebody.

"I had to get a call that my niece was shot in the head from what started as a fight."

The family has started a GoFundMe to raise money for medical expenses that aren't covered by insurance. We are told London still has to have a second surgery after the fragments of the bullets were removed.

They say they are very grateful for the community support. If you'd like to donate, you can do so here

Meanwhile, a 24-year-old man is facing multiple charges after the shooting.
